To help keep the final costs to you down, we try to eliminate
all cost-driers that do not directly contribute to the quality
of our programmes. To this end, we do not provide a 'front of house'
service. Instead, all enquiries are handled by the production staff
Please understand that your initial enquiry will really need the attention of an experienced Project Manager, who can take the time to properly explore your need and answer your questions - and they're very-often out actually making programmes! For that reason, we would strongly suggest that the best way to make initial contact with us is probably via Email;
PLEASE NOTE: due to the VERY high levels of SPAM and SCAM emails sent
from certain platforms WE NOW BLOCK ALL EMAIL FROM GMAIL, AOL and a
number of other common 'free' email providers as well as certain country
TLDs (Russia, India etc.). We regret any inconvenience this may cause,
but find that very few genuine enquirers actually operate via these
services. Should your genuine enquiry be caught in one of our filters,
please feel free to contact us by phone. During
the normal working week we aim to respond to email within a maximum
of 24 hours - but we're normally very much quicker than that!
Our main telephone number is staffed on an ad-hoc basis (by the production staff) supported by a 24-hour answer service. In practice, staff are generally available able to deal with telephone enquiries for over 80% of the working week - please remember that this is a part of our cost-cutting strategy which is designed to keep the end cost to you, the client down. Bona-fide clients and partners are provided with an unpublished business mobile number for their assigned project manager as well as a direct email address for them.
WE RESPECTFULLY REQUEST NO CONTACT FROM THOSE INVOLVED IN TELESALES OR RECRUITMENT ACTIVITIES
AND ADVISE THAT OUR NUMBERS ARE REGISTERED WITH CTPS.
